A shooting at a Chicago beach leaves several dead and dozens injured. In the year before the attack, four individuals emerge as possible suspects.
An apathetic computer programmer.
An ex-college athlete with a history of head injuries.
An Army veteran turned Chicago cop.
A despondent high school student.
One of them is the shooter. Discover who and why.
Parabellum by Greg Hickey
Dark, heavy with atmosphere and a sense of tension that never lets up as PARABELLUM by Greg Hickey slowly unfurls its dark wings and exposes the jagged claws that could create a killing machine.
A mass shooting on a beach, a monster has reared its ugly head, but who is the killer? How did he/she get to this point of violence? Four twisted personalities are examined, four possible suspects come to life, each damaged, slightly out of sync with the world, but are any of them capable of mass murder? What could drive a person to commit such a heinous crime?
Stark and bold writing, weighted with the internal lives of four people who were shaped by their pasts. Greg Hickey has created a tale that will engulf readers in his world, while giving us a “house of horrors” eye view inside the minds that are slightly askew, frustrated and lonely. Do we really know those around us or do we all hide some hidden inner beast just waiting to be unleashed when circumstances come together just so?
Edgy reading that is as difficult to put down as it is to turn away from a crash scene.
I received a complimentary copy from Greg Hickey! This is my honest and voluntary review.
